how george bush was treated? i just think the signage and language and history is so much deeper and these images are so much more insensitive than anything that george bush faced. >> but i think the really important comparison is to back to the last democratic president who made republicans crazy with hate for him. so lfb i images like that are racist, but i don't think republicans hate him because he's black, but because he's a democratic president, and a lot of the discussion gets built around his race. republicans would tell you that he had orchestrated the murder of vince foster and he was a rapist and all these other horrible thing. >> i think that's very different that go home, you're 47% kneelingo and go home, kenyan. these are cultural stereotypes, rachellely inflammatory. >> i mostly agree with what josh said i think the hatred comes first and then you use everything you have, but there are some things unique. we have people questioning whether he was born in the united states. it goes on, if you look at polls in more nan 5% of people i think the color of his skin, the
president george w. bush weighed in on the president ace options in syria. let's take a listen to what he said. >> the president has got a tough choice to make. if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he's made mischief. >> oh, e.j. mr. assad has made mischief according to former president george w. bush. >> i don't agree with him much but i'm not a fan of mr. assad. everybody agrees this is a brutal regime. has been going back to the time of his father. of course, the question is what do we do about it? the question has always been asked. there are a lot of brutal regimes in the world. when do we choose to act? when we talk about expecting what john kerry is going to say, if indeed we're acting, i expect him to go back to that very morally rooted language he used a couple of days ago saying we've got no choice but to act when they use chemical weapons. but that still won't explain what the strategy is and i hope the rest of his statement is involved in explaining what we're going to do
follow george w. bush. sometimes the refusal to take a bold principled stand turns out to be the riskiest course of all. the president himself said we're getting hit from both sides, both supporters of morsi and supporters of the military coup, whatever we want to call it. and that there is -- being stuck in the middle does not seem to be serving us particularly well. >> i think there's a tendency to assume that the united states is the wizard behind the curtain that has the ability to control everything with just a few buttons here and there and a little bit of aid pulled here and more aid put there. i just don't think that is the case. i just don't think that's real. i think that we are in a bind in terms of what type of leverage we have here and obviously the overriding principle has been to allow some sort of democratic process to flourish but you don't get that when you have a quasi coup or when you have -- whatever the brotherhood is doing with respect to attacking christians there -- though these reports are unconfirmed. what are we supposed to do? we're not going to send troops th
one either new orleans or baton rouge. >> that was george w. bush discussing the biggest mistakes of his presidency in his final press conference. president obama did not mention that it took two days -- two days -- for national guard troops to arrive after the hurricane struck or three days for fema to acknowledge that there was a situation at the superdome. instead, our 43rd president wished he had done a different photo-op. that clip is from january 12th, 2009, more than three years after the storm laid waste to new orleans and the gulf coast. here's why we're talking about it right now. a new ppp poll finds that 29% of louisiana republicans believe president obama was responsible for the poor response to hurricane katrina. that is more than the 28% who blame george w. bush, the man actually president at the time and for the three years following it. the results are even more stunning among republicans over the age of 65. 42% of them blame the botched response on barack obama who was at the time a freshman senator in the united states congress. >>> coming up, the white house ex
. former president george w. bush is recovering at a dallas hospital from a heart procedure he underwent this morning after doctors discovered a blocked artery during his annual physical. the operation successfully placed a stent in the artery to open the blockage. the former president says he is in high spirits and will return to his normal schedule on thursday. we'll continue to monitor the story as it develops. >>> turning now to president obama's policy push, he is just a few hours from touching down in phoenix where he'll highlight positive gains made in the state's housing market. the southwest stopover is part of the president's recent campaign to shift focus back to the nation's economy but sunny weather and signs of a recovery are not all that awaits him in the canyon of of the unknown. president obama will once again be greeted on the tarmac by arizona governor and self-proclaimed scorpion eater jan brewer, the same jan brewer who last year greeted the president with a now-infamous finger wag. in addition to her predilection of insects in the early hour, she's a prime example o
saw that during the financial crisis when the choice of george w. bush, whose economic record was maligned by democrats for quite a long time, turned out to be a vital partner with president obama in trying to stop the financial crisis and get the recovery going. so we are not making too big a deal of it. the only thing that may be out of proportion is the speculation to knowledge ratio, because it's a very small number of people, the president and a few people very close to him who really know his thinking, although i talked to a couple of people on the larger obama team today who continue to think that the odds are pretty strong that the president will in fact pick larry summers despite this flak. >> can i ask you, john, why -- why larry summers? if you look at his record, he blocked the regulation of derivatives when he was serving with president clinton. he advocated an appeal of glass-steagall, he pushed for a smaller stimulus in 2009 and resigned from harvard over sexist comments questioning women's aptitude in math and science. you compare that to janet yellin who warne
